  1. I updated and drove for a bit, I didn't notice any difference, but I wasn't having any problems.
  2. Looks like they released a new firmware, maybe it will help people with problems? I didn't see any update notes, and haven't tried it myself. https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/NEX/DMH-WT8600NEX#downloads
  3. When you say, "music app" do you mean the default Music app, or just "any" music app? I no longer use the Apple music app, but the music app I use is not experiencing any problem. If it’s only on the stock music app, does it have the same problem with other music apps like Spotify?
  4. You could try to update the firmware by putting 1.3x on a usb stick? Not sure it will let you downgrade, (not sure anyone has tried to do it?) it’s not just 5x2 though, it’s now reporting its resolution properly, (you can see more of the map/more entires per screen, etc) so consider if its worth downgrading
  5. Here are a bunch of screenshots, but basically it now supports 5x2 icons, and also side-screens other pioneer functions (like HD Radio, Camera, etc) https://imgur.com/a/P0fvHST
  6. Pioneer updated the firmware to 2.00 and included a new split screen feature, haven't tried it yet, this is more FYI It covers a bunch of headunits though... https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/NEX/DMH-WT8600NEX#downloads
  7. I have used the stereo's USB-C and C-A adapter and then a regular Apple USB-A lightning cable and it works fine. Make sure settings\face id & passcode\USB accessories is turned on maybe
  8. Do you have an Shortcut automations? Do you have Shortcut notifications disabled?
  9. A post I made back here about the unit booting into this display, had gone away until I updated to iOS 14.3 now it boots to this screen every time!? Anyone else having this? Update: So the update is, if I hit OK on the warning at the start the unit will show wiif-audio for a sec, and switch to CarPlay GUI, but if I leave the warning to time out, then it will stay in wifi-audio section. This only started happening around the iOS 14.3 update, so I suspect its a bit of a incompatibility with what 14.3 wants and the Pioneer is doing on a timed out screen/(maybe just timing)
  10. I dont think thats going to help ... https://photos.app.goo.gl/c7Uz7PzpCJsSee4GA
  11. I tried about 6 other USB sticks before finding one that worked. Those other ones that failed, I have used to play videos on the headunit, so there is something about the firmware environment that seems much more "picky" than when using media. The USB that worked for me was swag from some trade show, (it was a little plastic man, whose head comes off and is a 1GB usb stick), so I don't have any details about its make/etc. Maybe bonee can mention a make/model/link for one that worked?
  12. Is the issue you are having with USB the fact that it doesn't seem to see the USB stick? Or is it something else? I did have a HELL of a time getting the DMH-WT8600NEX to accept a USB stick. I went through a bunch of different USB stick, all of them failed to be recognized, the only one that worked was a small, very old 1Gig USB stick
  13. Good news, the 1.30 firmware is available for download. https://www.pioneerelectronics.com/StaticFiles/PUSA/Car_Electronics/Firmware Update Files/2020-DMH/October_2020/DMH-WT8600NEX.zip
  14. I just spent about 30 minutes trying.... Connected car to phone, phone to car, it never works! mfvtgtgs, can you do a video of the update process? Do you use the wifi hotspot, or the wireless smartphones option. What version of iOS? Hey, have you done the brake bypass? I just tried it on my Android and it says 1.13 is the latest? https://photos.app.goo.gl/Gf1D1CLi4DUxYqMz9
  15. I've have been on all the iOS 14 betas and I still have it. But I will say it was much lower in b4-b5, but I find that b6 (for the last couple of days) has been worse. I think it might just be random though and unrelated to iOS; but I hope its related and Apple is trying to compensate for whatever the problem is. I am largely hoping that iPhone 12 Pro (and QualComm) will fix it by getting rid of the cancer that is Intel modems
  16. I agree. When I used the stopwatch, I failed at least 20 times, then just counted in my head, got it on the first try
  17. If you follow the reddit links, it has all the history and parts and even a diagram ... but the latest info (and a link to the code is at this one) .... you might want to read the links inside to get more context.
  18. All you need is willpower. When I first did the Alpine volume knob I had never worked with Arduino and hadn't done electronics since high-school, but the need for a volume knob was strong. That said you might have to solder some connections, so a soldering iron at least is needed. If you buy the same rotary encoder and digital POT that I bought, at least you will not need to change the code at all. Something to note, I dont have a iDatalink, so "just in case it does cause problems" I didnt want you to think I had one and it was working? How long does it take to move the volume with th
  19. The problem is very similar to Alpine problem, especially “that certain areas can do it”. Maybe turn LTE off before the drive and ON after? Alternately, maybe try another carrier’s SIM (a friends/wifes/etc) to see if they have the same problems in the same spots (it should not which suggests cell-tower triangulation). Thats probably more extreme and turning LTE. Its unfortunate that Shortcuts can only turn off CELL and NOT specific LTE. But if you music was local, and you used google with Local Maps, that might be an idea (have an automation turn cellular off?). (never tried that though)
  20. As you probably recall, I have it. I don't have it as much as you guys though. I got it twice with "hey Siri" off, so that is officially NOT the problem. Did you try LTE off? I did it for 2 days with no drops but I just can't handle 3G anymore so turned LTE back on. I can't confirm if it helps or not.
  21. For AA they have a setting in the Settings for "auto launch AA", with CarPlay its on the phone, but CarPlay usually auto-starts into the CarPlay interface but this is going into the Pioneer UI interface. And only about 40% of the time. Are you saying that sometimes your AA starts in AA, and sometimes it starts in Pioneer UI (connected to AA) ? Its a bit of a hassle, because I have to hit menu to go back into the Main Pioneer Home display and hit CarPlay from there, (normally it should go right into CarPlay). This never happened before firmware 1.13 (I'm not blaming it on that firmware), I
  22. The "mode" button on the IR remote flips between the 2, so now the question is "why" is this happening to me .... Question: do most people hit the first nag screen or do they let it time out?
  23. Lately my unit is booting into this screen, I would say about 40% of the time. It knows its CarPlay and playing music from CarPlay, and if I go back to the main menu, I can go into CarPlay .... but this is Pioneer UI? Is anyone having this? Is there a way to stop it! https://imgur.com/a/Wy3nIBI
